Indian FTR 1200 stands as the brand’s most-customisable platform to date, featuring four distinct accessory collections, designed to modify the bike’s overall look and feel based on the unique tastes and styles of different riders. Now, Indian Motorcycle has taken things a step further by collaborating with five renowned artists – Steve Caballero, D*Face (a.k.a. Dean Stockton), Adam Turman, ThankYouX (a.k.a. Ryan Wilson), and RISK – who will develop a limited-edition ‘Artist Series’ line of tank covers for the FTR 1200.
Indian Motorcycle curated a lineup of artists with extremely distinct styles from street graffiti to modern abstract, in order to appeal to a wider range of consumer preferences. The artistic tank covers will allow FTR 1200 owners to instantly transform their bikes into a piece of mobile fine art, while also increasing their personal connection with their bikes.
Reid Wilson, Senior Director of Marketing and Product for Indian Motorcycles, said, “Art and motorcycles share a common thread of self-expression, and for motorcycles, customisation is where self-expression truly comes to life. The FTR 1200 and its diverse accessory collections, were purposefully designed to enable a rider’s desire for self-expression, and the Artist Series serves that same purpose in a highly artistic fashion.”
With its fuel tank located beneath the seat, the FTR 1200 airbox sits directly over the motor where fuel tanks more commonly reside. This allows for tank covers that are easy to remove and interchange, making the process of customisation and personalisation even more efficient for riders.
Only 100 tank covers for each design will be produced, with the five unique designs to be unveiled on June 13 at Wheels & Waves in Biarritz, France. For those buying a five-day ticket in advance, Indian Motorcycle will automatically enter them into a prize draw for a chance to win the all-new FTR 1200. The draw will take place on Saturday night at the main stage of the village.
